General Development Recently, Free Pascal (FPC) version 2.2.0 was released. This open source Pascal compiler has - since its initial release in 1993 - grown to be one of the most sophisticated open source compilers available today. Daily, more programmers discover FPC and develop their applications in Object Pascal. Specifically, the development of Lazarus has contributed to this phenomenon: Lazarus is a graphical open source IDE for FPC, with an extensive tool kit to design graphical (GUI) applications.

Yeah... because sizing logic is so hard to do, if automatically done for me, I will use something else...

Chode.

Are you saying "I don't care because I can write sizing code myself"? What an elitist attitude. Just because I can doesn't mean I should. Give me one good reason why I should waste my time on micromanaging coordinates instead of focusing on solving the problem.

There is a layout engine as memson describes in the VCL (and LCL) If you don't know that, you obviously never seriously worked with it.
